Love Yourself – Visible Image Stamps

Good Evening! Hope you have had a great weekend.

Kim Johnny is here with some more fantastic mail art created (of course) with some of our awesome stamps!

Here’s Kim…


Hello!

Today I want to share a postcard for my weekly Visible Image creative make.



2015-09-13 Visible Image stamps - Inky Flower stamp - Love Yourself - Kim Johnny


The postcard is 4 inches by 6 inches and cut from Canson Mixed Media paper.  I picked my go to soothing colors of Distress Ink, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon. I added the happy bubbles with an ARTplorations stencil and DecoArt modeling paste.

The word art sentiment Love Yourself is part of the No Regrets set. I heat embossed all the stamps in white EP, Ranger Superfine

I think Flower INKognito is my most favorite Visible Image stamp…it is so fun to use in so many ways. I hope someday there would be a smaller version and some cousins for this beauty 🙂

I adore the stem is a separate piece from the flower. The stem works great for any grungy touch needed 🙂 It is a fantastic set.

Inky Mail Art – Visible Image stamps

Hi There! We are back with another super tutorial for you 🙂

Here’s our US Design Team member Kim Johnny with some awesome mail art!


Hello!


Today I wanted to share a new pair of mail art postcards I made using my favorite Visible Image stamps.



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Inky grungy stamps - Flower - Butterfly - Kim Johnny


Each postcard is just about 4 inches by 6 inches and full of mixed fun!


I used the fabulous Flower INKognito and Butterfly INKognito stamps by Visible Image.

2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Inky grungy stamps - Butterfly - Kim Johnny


I stamped Butterfly INKognito onto tissue paper using Ranger Jet Black Archival ink. The background I created using the ARTplorations stencil Old Rose Prints with DecoArt modeling paste and Americana acylic paint.



The back of the post card uses the ‘stem’ from Flower INKognito. The dots, more of my favorites, are from the Plasma set. The background is a mix of water, acrylic paint and dish soap. There are some fun tutorials out there; you make bubbles with this mixture and then dip the paper into it and/or let the bubbles land on it (the most fun way!)

The background here was made with DecoArts Fluid acrylics Quinacridone Violet and Titanium White, misted with water and mixed on my craft mat.  The flowers are heat embossed in white.



I added the Flower INKognito stamp and “Listen to your Heart” is from the “This is Me” set.



Thanks so much for coming by today! Hope to see you again soon!

Mixed Media Postcard – Visible Image stamps

Hello 🙂 We are back with more awesome inspiration for you this evening.

Kim J has been getting inky and the results are fantastic…


Hello!

Today is my day to share some Visible Image fun 🙂

I have a mixed media postcard today. I am having so much fun with mail art! Hope you like it!

This is  the front side of the card. I started with some plain white mixed media paper. I cut a bunch of pieces to 4 inches by 6 inches.

Then I made puddles of Americana Multi Surface Satin paints on my craft mat, spritzed with water and smooshed the paper into the paints. Lots of painty play. The nicest thing, once the paint is dry, it is very easy to stamp onto the background.

The front side uses the awesome Vision INKognito and sentiment Love Yourself from the No Regrets set. Both are heat embossed with Distress Ink and Ranger Superfine powder.

I dry embossed the chicken wire pattern on the side of the front of the card. Then layered some clear embossing powder and Jet Black Archival ink. This makes is so wonderful to feel and added some POP and shine 🙂

2015-07-28 Visible Image stamps - Mixed Media Postcard 3 - Kim J



This is the backside of the postcard. For the text and address divider I used the stem from Flower INKognito.  The amazing splats are found in the Ink Splats set. All are stamped with Distress Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Super fine, black powder.

 


2015-07-28 Visible Image stamps - Mixed Media Postcard 4 - Kim J


I added some fine paintbrush spatters with Black DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic paint. More spatters the better in my mind anyways!

I glued the front and back together with Americana Decou-page Paper collage medium. It dries quickly and non-tacky.

Once done I inked all the edges and my fingers with Jet Black Archival ink.



So are you ready to play and get inky??
